Blues Trust Meeting Review Panel
Blues Trust has been invited to meet the Panel appointed to lead the Government’s fan-led review of football. We will be influencing the review through discussions (organised by the Football Supporters Association) with Tracey Crouch MP and the other panel members, starting next week, to support the evidence gathering phase of the review.
We will be submitting a full written report with our proposals to the Panel towards the end of June, and to help us do that we would very much welcome thoughts and ideas from Trust members and other BCFC supporters (individuals and groups).
The review, which has just been launched, will focus on eight key strands of football governance:
- ownership tests
- independent regulation
- engagement with supporters
- scrutiny of club finances
- distribution of revenues
- governance models in other countries
- protection of club identities
- relationships within the football pyramid
It is expected that an interim report will be produced in July, with the final report being published by Tracey Crouch in October.
Over the next couple of weeks we will be publishing brief articles on each of the eight key strands of the review and inviting comments to help shape the Trust’s response. The review is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to address some of the many concerns that football supporters have identified, and the Trust wants to play its part in driving forward a programme for change.
Your views are important and we want to capture them. Please share them with us.
